Graduate Certificate in Asset Integrity and Reliability Engineering

Course Overview

GCARE

This graduate certificate will equip you with communication (oral and written) skills to investigate, analyze and present technical ideas, information and solutions on issues in relation to asset integrity and reliability in engineering projects in a professional, independent and organized manner within the engineering domain.

Upon completion of this graduate certificate, graduates will be able to identify, critically analyze and creatively solve intellectually complex, specialized professional engineering problems. Graduates will learn functional safety systems, hazard and risk management, data analysis, statistics, asset integrity, reliability and asset management. You will have an in-depth understanding of synthesis and design in specialist bodies of knowledge across engineering disciplines including risk management and safety, risk reduction, accident prevention in high hazard industries, data backed asset integrity and reliability assessments.

    Program Details

    The program is delivered using a wide range of learning activities such as live webinars, written assignments, and remote laboratories. These experiences aim to get the students interacting via technology-based learning experiences that highlight shared skills and knowledge derived from the many cultural and technical contexts in which the students are working.

    You must complete 12 credit points comprising four core units. There are no electives in this program. The program duration is six months across two terms, and you will study two units per term. For further study, graduates may consider EIT’s Master of Engineering (Safety, Risk & Reliability).

    Unit Code Subjects Credit Points
    MSR505 Safety Systems – Tools and Methods 3
    MSR508 Data Analysis and Statistics 3
    MSR601 Asset Integrity and Management 3
    MSR603 Reliability Engineering 3

    • Have completed the equivalent of first-year Bachelor level mathematics, or are able to demonstrate recognized relevant work experience.
    • Have an appropriate level of English Language Proficiency at an English pass level in an Australian Senior Certificate of Education, or an IELTS score of 6.0 (with no individual band less than 6.0)**, or equivalent as outlined in the EIT Admissions Policy.

    Applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree in a non-congruent engineering field are required to demonstrate their prior learning and experience is equivalent to the entry requirements (exact positions and roles that will be considered relevant are to be decided by each specialisation and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the EIT Admissions Committee).

    Applicants who do not hold a recognized bachelor’s degree are required to demonstrate their prior learning and experience is equivalent to this qualification. A minimum of an Australian Advanced Diploma (or equivalent) in Engineering and 5 years of technical work experience at a technologist level or above in a relevant engineering field is required for an application to be considered (exact positions and roles that will be considered relevant are to be decided by each specialization and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the EIT Admissions Committee) ***

    Please note:

    1. All applicants must have evidence of engineering exposure in their degree and/or work experience
    2. All applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
    3. All documents submitted as part of your application must be certified.

    **Congruent field of practice for GCARE means any recognised undergraduate degree in engineering or engineering science degree.

    Students who have a Graduate Certificate in Asset Integrity and Reliability Engineering can enhance their ability and knowledge in the engineering – safety, risk and reliability field, enabling them to gain and hold employment.

    Graduates will be able to work in a wide range of asset management, safety, risk management, reliability engineering and asset integrity in the engineering industry in mid-career, technical management or senior level role.

    Our graduate certificates take six months to complete. We deliver our online graduate certificates on a part-time intensive basis. Part-time Students are expected to spend approximately 10-15 hours per week per unit learning the program material and completing assessments. This includes attending tutorials.

    Applications are open for both our upcoming intakes. You must submit your application at least four weeks prior to the start date to be considered for your desired intake.

    A census date is the date at which an enrolment is considered to be final. Any withdrawal you make after the study period census date will incur an academic penalty (for example, a fail grade) and a financial penalty (for example, no refund of your student contribution or tuition fees). See our current census dates.

    Any student has a right to appeal a decision of the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) or any member of the institute’s staff. EIT has a comprehensive Policy on Appeals and Grievances to assist students.

      The delivery methodology and the information available in the e-library can’t be beaten. The other important aspect of online education is recorded lectures. You can review the tutorial and lessons on repeat when you need to understand the concept.

      What I liked most about the course and EIT is the flexibility is offered regarding education. It gave me the opportunity to study and work full-time.  
    C Groenewald, South Africa
      I enjoyed interacting with students all around the world, and seeing how the principles I have learned applies to them as well.  
    S Zeelie, South Africa
      My line of work requires me travel quite often. I could not attend every class due to my remote locations, but still I could recap and stay on top of the study material thanks to the recordings. Also, all the Instructors were world class.
